Important News

Around Kirkby Lonsdale needs your help! AKL is produced and distributed by a small but dedicated team of volunteers and we’re looking for new blood. Our editorial team in particular could do with a fresh intake to enable us to continue delivering AKL every month. If you’d like to discuss what’s involved in editing AKL and how you could help assure its future, please get in touch via akl@kirkbylonsdale.co.uk. We’re also canvassing views on the content of AKL and we’re inviting KL residents to let us know what they love about it, what they’d like to see more of – and what, if anything, they’d rather wasn’t included. Please drop us a quick line with your thoughts and ideas to akl@kirkbylonsdale.co.uk and we’ll review your responses when we discuss how to move AKL forward.
